i'm not gonna do it. i'm comitted to the magnetically accelerated slug even if the nukes are more feasable option. i'm at the point where the storyline is more important. maybe the target race has fission damping technology that wouldn't allow nukes to work.
Drakkith, thanks for the input. the multiple round option would make the weapon effective on other ships also.
anybody;what if i made the each successive magnet more powerful than the previous magnet? would that make a recoil mechanism effective with the larger slug? also i would counter thrust so no inertial dampering would be necessary.
Note that each successive magnet is going to be acting on a round that is moving successively slower, so there's no need for each one to be stronger than the last....what if i made the each successive magnet more powerful than the previous magnet?
